    MLB 2016-2017 Offseason Thread

    Starting this now with the winter meetings coming.

    Yay for no lockout, though!


    Apparently we're gonna trade Cutcho for prospects and try a quick rebuild around Marte, Polanco, Josh Bell, and Cole. Not really a fan, but this sort of deal is standard for the Pirates' tight-wallets mentality.

    Sources: Pirates Increase Efforts to Trade McCutchen


    Start there: Should the Buccos trade McCutchen? If so, which team makes a play?

    Nah that won't push them over the edge. Dombrowski loves blowing up farm systems tho damn. Their backend is still weak af and Porcello needs to prove he isn't a flukey little flukester. So happy we didn't blow our farm for a retarded trade I was actually getting worried

    Loving the Sox offseason right now but past history means I'm still not completely sold we're creating a championship caliber team.

    Getting rid of that Clay contract was the move of the offseason, though. A little too late though.

    That contract wasn't hurting you. Getting rid of it does nothing unless they make another move to free up money because signing Jose "dave" Bautista or Ee would push them over the luxury tax again.

    Dombrowski is a Playa hata tho so he's probably frontin and is about to sign one of them anyway

    You pretty much explained why it was a good move. The plan apparently is to continue to free up the worst or the most concerning contracts and keep going all in.

    That was still was too much considering they knew from the get-go Clay deteriorates like a corpse by the month.

    Yeah I don't like the move the Phils got for Clay. The majority of us have had Clay on our Fantasy Baseball team one time or another and he's let our teams down more often that not. I hope he doesn't start make him a Reliever, but how average the Phillies team is he just might need to start

    I did like them getting Joaquin Benoit and extending Herrera for 5 years. Maybe the best player last season for the Phils.

    Well he said he wasn't looking to move anyone else. That's why I said he's probably fronting.

    Bold prediction: they trade Kimbrel

    Look who just signed with the Indians! Edwin Encarnacion signed with a option for 2020.

    Pirates got Nova for 3 years, 26 million or something around there. And trying for Quintana. Probably need to give up Taillon, Glasnow, and Meadows.

    All 3 for Quintana? I'd probably end up taking that deal if I were the White Sox, might be as good as the Eaton deal.

    I don't understand why the Cubs hate the idea of Hector as closer, don't like the idea of trading Soler, one of our key prospects for a vet reliever. But it's okay, Almora time baybay, never doubt Theo & co.

    Vlad and hoffman will be in next year for sure. Bonds and clemens won't get in until closer towards their eligibility expiring.

    It's sad that there are /still/ stupid baseball writers who put weight on whether or not a player is a "first-ballot" hall of famer

    Votes are made public starting next year so it won't happen anymore. Griffey not being unanimous was a travesty and a slap in the face to the games legacy. Chipper will probably be the first unanimous under these guidelines.
